XOOX, primeiro serviço de rede para pets (PNS) do mundo, chama a atenção com o seu lançamento

– Popular por seus desafios de conteúdos curtos, música para pets e aplicativo de kit de diagnóstico de doenças, etc.

– Serviço recém-criado com registro de identificação que usa os olhos dos pets

NOVA YORK, Nov. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — XOOX, um aplicativo de serviço de rede para pets (PNS) com desafios de conteúdo curtos, foi lançado este mês, conquistando os donos de pets de todo o mundo. A XOOX deu início ao seu serviço com um anúncio na Times Square de Nova York, ressaltando seu foco exclusivo nos nossos companheiros de quatro patas.

A XOOX opera exclusivamente sob contas de pets por meio do registro de identificação de pets desenvolvido pelas equipes globais de pesquisa e IA da XOOX, incluindo especialistas veterinários de todo o mundo, utilizando técnicas inovadoras de identificação biométrica, como padrões das dobras das pálpebras e dos olhos. A equipe de pesquisa da XOOX disse: “Com o Pet ID, os pets são reconhecidos como usuários da conta na XOOX, permitindo que eles participem de várias atividades, como registro, seguro, gerenciamento da saúde e fazer amizades com outros pets”. “Para aprimorar a precisão do reconhecimento biométrico, adotamos um método superior ao da impressão do focinho e das varreduras da íris.”

Com a XOOX, os pets se tornam influenciadores com as suas identidades, aumentando a visibilidade ao compartilhar sua vida diária, interagir com os seguidores e participar de desafios de conteúdo curtos. Nas várias atividades eles ganham pontos que podem ser usados nos aplicativos conectados, na criação de avatar e compras de produtos. Os donos de pets, conhecidos como Petlers, gerenciam os documentos de identificação dos seus pets e os apoiam nas suas atividades. Esforçando-se para promover uma mudança positiva na atitude em relação aos pets, o XOOX também aceita pessoas que ainda não têm nenhum pet. Mas essas pessoas ainda não podem postar conteúdo. Peter Kim, consultor técnico da XOOX, disse: “A XOOX visa criar um espaço positivo onde as pessoas podem escapar da realidade complicada da vida e se conectarem com seus pets”. Kim acrescentou: “Com a XOOX os pets poderão criar mais memórias com seus Petlers, utilizando um enfoque em storyscaping e serviços exclusivos e informativos.”

O mundo do XOOX está cheio de conteúdo exclusivo para os pets. Seu aplicativo de música mais popular (XOOX M) permite que os Petlers selecionem músicas que atendam às preferências do seu pet. O aplicativo, criado através do desenvolvimento de conteúdo pelo Jo Studios, afiliado de conteúdo musical da XOOX (CEO: Woojin Cho), foi criado para os pets que esperam seus donos, e que conta com mais de 3.000 músicas. Os Petlers também podem criar e carregar suas próprias músicas, ganhando pontos por popularidade e que podem ser usados pelos seus pets. A XOOX M garante uma experiência auditiva ideal para os pets em um nível confortável de decibéis.

Além disso, um produto criado com o Push Pull System (CEO: Sungmyon Song) está sendo desenvolvido. Com a análise e utilização de técnicas profundas de aprendizagem, o produto poderá determinar se os pets realmente gostam de música e não ouvem simplesmente um ruído. O produto irá se sincronizar integralmente com câmeras e alto-falantes para pets e fazer recomendações personalizadas de músicas para os pets.

Os donos de pets devem ficar atentos para a promoção de lançamento do aplicativo. Em comemoração ao lançamento, a XOOX está distribuindo 10.000 kits de teste de urina gratuitos para assinantes de todo o mundo. Esses kits de teste fornecem uma maneira simples de detectar doenças através da urina dos animais, sendo ideais para pets de áreas com acesso limitado a cuidados veterinários, ajudando a manter o bem-estar dos pets tão queridos.

Além disso, com base no lançamento do aplicativo de kit para pets de diagnóstico de urina com a Medi Cloud, uma empresa global de análise genética baseada na tecnologia NGS, a XOOX também lançará aplicativos que conectam o DNA do pet ao MBTI.

Após a inscrição, 1 centavo será doado automaticamente à Fundação XOOX. Essas contribuições serão direcionadas a campanhas em todo o mundo com o objetivo de influenciar positivamente as legislações relacionadas aos pets. Com a XOOX capacitando os pets a terem um papel central no nosso mundo, estamos certos de que isso irá contribuir substancialmente para a criação de um ambiente mais favorável e adequado os pets.

XOOX, le premier réseau social pour animaux de compagnie au monde, crée le buzz avec son lancement

– Connu pour ses défis sous forme de contenu court, ses musiques pour animaux de compagnie, son application pour kits de diagnostic de maladies, etc.

– Offre un tout nouveau service d’identification par reconnaissance des yeux des animaux

NEW YORK, 21 nov. 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — XOOX, une application de réseautage pour animaux de compagnie (pet networking service, PNS) proposant des défis sous forme de contenus courts qui vient d’être lancée ce mois, et séduit déjà les propriétaires d’animaux du monde entier. Pour son lancement, XOOX s’est offert une publicité à Times Square à New York, pour présenter son approche exclusive axée sur nos compagnons à quatre pattes.

XOOX propose exclusivement des comptes pour animaux de compagnie grâce à Pet ID, un système d’identification des animaux. Conçu par les équipes internationales axées sur la recherche et l’IA de XOOX comprenant des experts vétérinaires du monde entier, il emploie des techniques d’identification biométrique innovantes basées sur des données telles que la forme des paupières et les plis autour des yeux. L’équipe de recherche de XOOX déclare : « Grâce à Pet ID, les animaux de compagnie sont reconnus comme des utilisateurs de comptes sur XOOX, ce qui permet d’accéder à diverses activités telles que l’enregistrement d’un animal, la souscription d’une assurance, la prise en charge de l’état de santé, et permet aussi de se faire des amis. Afin d’améliorer la précision de la reconnaissance biométrique, nous avons opté pour une méthode qui constitue une avancée majeure par rapport aux empreintes nasales et aux scans de l’iris. »

Avec XOOX, les animaux deviennent de véritables influenceurs grâce à leur identifiant, augmentent leur visibilité en partageant leur quotidien, interagissent avec leurs abonnés et participent à des défis sous forme de contenus courts. Ils remportent des points pour différentes activités, qu’ils peuvent utiliser avec des applications connectées pour créer des avatars et acheter des produits. Les propriétaires d’animaux, ou « Petlers », gèrent les identifiants de leurs animaux et les aident à réaliser leurs activités. Soucieux d’encourager un changement d’attitude positif envers les animaux, XOOX invite également les personnes qui ne sont pas actuellement propriétaires d’animaux de compagnie à rejoindre le réseau. Cependant, ils ne sont pas encore actuellement autorisés à publier du contenu. Peter Kim, conseiller technique chez XOOX, déclare : « XOOX cherche à créer un espace positif afin de permettre aux personnes d’échapper à la dure réalité du monde actuel et de créer des liens avec leurs animaux de compagnie. » Kim ajoute : « XOOX permet aux animaux de créer des souvenirs avec leurs Petlers grâce à l’approche du « storyscaping », une expérience de récit immersive, et à des services uniques et informatifs. »

L’univers XOOX regorge de contenu exclusif destiné aux animaux de compagnie. Grâce à son application musicale très populaire (XOOX M), les Petlers peuvent sélectionner la musique préférée de leur animal. L’application, créée grâce au développement de contenu par Jo Studios, filiale de contenu musical de XOOX (PDG : Woojin Cho), est conçue pour les animaux lorsqu’ils attendent le retour de leurs propriétaires, et héberge actuellement plus de 3 000 chansons. Les Petlers peuvent également créer et télécharger leur propre musique, ce qui leur permet de gagner des points de popularité qu’ils peuvent ensuite dépenser pour leurs animaux de compagnie. XOOX M garantit une expérience d’écoute adaptée aux animaux à un niveau de décibels confortable.

De plus, un produit développé avec Push Pull System (PDG : Sungmyon Song) est en cours d’élaboration. Grâce à des analyses et à l’utilisation de techniques d’apprentissage profond, nous déterminerons si les animaux apprécient réellement la musique et ne la perçoivent pas comme un simple bruit. Le produit se synchronisera sans effort avec les caméras et haut-parleurs destinés aux animaux de compagnie, et proposera des recommandations musicales personnalisées pour vos animaux.

Si vous êtes propriétaire d’un animal de compagnie, la promotion de lancement de l’application pourrait vous intéresser. Pour fêter ce lancement, XOOX offre 10 000 kits de tests urinaires gratuits aux titulaires de comptes à travers le monde. Ces kits de tests constituent un moyen simple de détecter certaines maladies grâce à l’urine chez les animaux, ce qui les rend idéaux dans les zones où l’accès aux soins vétérinaires est limité, et permet de préserver le bien-être de nos adorables compagnons à quatre pattes.

En outre, suite au lancement de l’application de kits de diagnostics urinaires pour animaux de compagnie avec Medi Cloud, une société internationale spécialisée dans les analyses génétiques basées sur la technologie de séquençage nouvelle génération (NGS), XOOX lancera également des applications permettant de relier l’ADN des animaux de compagnie et leur type de personnalité en fonction de l’indicateur MBTI.

Lors de l’inscription, 1 centime est automatiquement reversé à la Fondation XOOX. Ces contributions seront reversées à diverses campagnes à travers le monde qui visent à influencer positivement les lois relatives aux droits des animaux. Grâce à XOOX, les animaux de compagnie peuvent désormais jouer un rôle central dans le monde actuel, et nous sommes convaincus que cela contribuera grandement à créer des environnements plus favorables et plus respectueux pour les animaux.

RSPO Celebrates 20 Years of Impact and Reaffirms the Power of Partnerships for the Next 20

Collective action and innovative practices sowed within the industry are reaping results, with RSPO global certification, membership, production and consumption volumes steadily on the rise, alongside greater environmental stewardship

Opening Speech

JAKARTA, Indonesia, Nov. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil marked a special milestone at its Annual Roundtable conference (RT2023), themed “Partners for the Next 20”, to reflect on nearly two decades of impact made possible through the collaborative efforts of RSPO’s Members and partners. RT2023 presented an opportunity to take unified action on the core challenges facing the sustainable palm oil industry, including mitigating climate change, increasing uptake of certified sustainable palm oil (CSPO), protecting labour rights, and facilitating greater smallholder inclusion in green supply chains through compliance with emerging international regulations.

For nearly twenty years, the RSPO has facilitated global change to make the production and consumption of palm oil sustainable. Starting from 200 members from 16 countries in 2004, RSPO now counts more than 5,700 members in over 100 countries and territories spanning the globe.

In his opening remarks, RSPO CEO Joseph D’Cruz said, “Through nearly two decades of voluntary action, RSPO Members have banded together to raise the bars of sustainability within the industry. The impact we have collectively achieved is increasingly being acknowledged by stakeholders outside our industry, and we are seeing a definite shift in the sustainable palm oil narrative in our favour. As a global partnership to make palm oil sustainable, we must ride this trajectory and continue to evolve and pursue new territory. There is room now for us to move beyond a standard and certification system and develop tools that would enable the industry to demonstrate sustainability in the way that markets, regulators and customers demand today.”

Opening Speech

RSPO’s key achievements over the last two decades were highlighted, including the increase in global certified area from just 125,000 hectares in 2008 to 4.9 million hectares across 23 countries in 2023. Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO) supply reached a new milestone at 15.4 million metric tonnes, while RSPO Trademark licences have increased significantly to more than 1,600 licences in over 100 countries and territories, with growth seen in China, Japan and Southeast Asia, signalling significant opportunities in these markets. The RSPO Smallholder Support Fund (RSSF) has provided US$4.2 million in funding to support 44,203 farmers in 12 countries since 2013. Accounting for 40% of total palm oil production output in key producing countries, smallholders featured strongly at RT2023, focused on opportunities and pathways to facilitate greater inclusion in green supply chains through compliance with emerging international regulations.

Charting new territory, RSPO’s Certification, Trade and Traceability System (CTTS), launched recently in October 2023 with the formation of the tripartite consortium of global agri-tech experts, exemplifies how the organisation is advancing and digitising its tracking and traceability systems into an end-to-end digital infrastructure. This is rooted by best-in-class solutions that will be able to meet current demands and anticipate the future needs of a sector that is rapidly evolving to meet tightening global regulations, starting with the EU Deforestation Regulation (EUDR), and is actively engaging with the European Commission for knowledge-sharing on this topic with all relevant parties.

Excellence Awards

International Center for Genetic Disease, Mass General Brigham launches a global Clinical Genomic Medicine and Genetic Counseling training program in United Arab Emirates

Collaboration between the International Center for Genetic Disease and the Department of Health – Abu Dhabi, advances state-of-the-art precision medicine approaches and techniques, tailoring prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases for the Emirati population. This collaboration encompasses three strategic pillars: clinical and translational research, capacity building and technology transfer, and commercialization.

Boston, MA, Nov. 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Genomic medicine, also known as precision medicine, offers transformative opportunities to reshape health care and public health from a ‘one size fits all’ approach to one utilizing an individual’s genetic profile, informing their personalized care pathway from prevention and diagnosis, to treatment of diseases and the development of novel and more effective drugs. To help further genomic medicine’s global promise, the International Center for Genetic Disease (iCGD) at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (a founding member of the Mass General Brigham system) and Harvard Medical School, is launching a six-month nationwide program to train 100 physicians across the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in clinical genomic medicine and genetic counseling. This training program is implemented in collaboration with the Department of Health – Abu Dhabi and Khalifa University of Science and Technology. The comprehensive partnership between iCGD, Mass General Brigham, and the Department of Health – Abu Dhabi will help advance life sciences and health care outcomes across the globe while leveraging the advanced genomics capabilities of the Emirate.

With an emphasis on screening, diagnosis, and treatment of a wide spectrum of genetic conditions, clinicians will become deft with the necessary knowledge and skills to address genetic and genomic challenges in a clinical setting. Additionally, the program ensures the successful execution of the Emirati Genome Program, bringing precision medicine to the forefront of public health policy formulation and implementation across the UAE.

“We are delighted to collaborate with the Department of Health – Abu Dhabi to launch this transformative training program,” said Alireza Haghighi, MD, DPhil, FACMG, Founding Director of the International Center for Genetic Disease. “As one of the largest and most comprehensive genomics educational programs worldwide, the primary goal is to enhance the knowledge and expertise of Emirati physicians. This initiative is designed to integrate genetics and genomics into patient care effectively, underscoring our dedication to enhancing genomic medicine worldwide. Our comprehensive partnership with the Department of Health – Abu Dhabi not only aims to advance life sciences but also to improve the well-being of the UAE population.”

Delivered by globally recognized Harvard-affiliated experts within the Mass General Brigham system and elsewhere, the program will enhance the knowledge and expertise of Emirati physicians, who will then be able to further incorporate the latest innovations in genomic medicine and genetic counseling into the clinical care of patients. The iCGD designed the program to specifically address the public health needs of the UAE.

“We are dedicated to enhancing patient care, preventing disease, and promoting the widespread adoption of genomic medicine, both locally and globally,” said Robert S.D. Higgins, MD, MSHA, President of Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Executive Vice President at Mass General Brigham. “Our International Center for Genetic Disease provides an ideal platform to realize these objectives. This transformative training program aims to cultivate a professional workforce in the UAE at the forefront of genomic research and clinical applications.”

The inaugural ceremony, held in Abu Dhabi, UAE, on October 30th, was attended by prominent Emirati officials, including His Excellency Mansoor Ibrahim Al Mansoori, Chairman of the Department of Health – Abu Dhabi; Her Excellency Dr. Noura Al Ghaithi, Undersecretary at the Department of Health – Abu Dhabi; Professor Sir John O’Reilly, President of Khalifa University; and His Excellency Homaid Al Shimmari, Vice Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Khalifa University.

“This program comes as a continuation of our collaboration with the International Center for Genetic Disease (iCGD) and Harvard Medical School which started earlier this year, providing the world with genomic solutions that address international health challenges and needs,” said Her Excellency Dr. Noura Al Ghaithi, Undersecretary at the Department of Health – Abu Dhabi. “This comes in line with the Department of Health’s efforts to unlock opportunities for local talents and ensure the sustainability of our healthcare sector. These continuous strides further cement Abu Dhabi’s position as a leading destination for healthcare.”

“We are delighted to join with our partners to launch the Clinical Genomics and Genetic Counseling course in the realm of healthcare at Khalifa University,” said Professor Sir John O’Reilly, President of Khalifa University. “Developments in this area represent a tremendous leap towards empowering individuals with a profound understanding of their own genetic tapestry.”

Advances in genomics, clinical diagnostic methods and therapies are now fueling healthcare. By integrating clinical data and genetic information, healthcare providers can improve population screening, diagnosis, prognosis, risk management, and in some cases, offer new and innovative targeted therapy for conditions such as cardiovascular diseases, hemoglobinopathies, lipid disorders, diabetes, cancer, among many other clinically complex morbidities.
